Foveran House, 1771. Cold, angular, two-storey-and-basement, five-window mansion in quoined granite ashlar with central wallhead gable on the front. The porch and set-back wings are later, as is the regrettable first-floor addition over the porch. Courtyard with offices to the rear, dominated by a grandiose harled tower with Jacobean angle-turrets each ogee-capped. Considerably altered, 1885, Matthews & Mackenzie. (Antique-looking tower at rear replaced Turing's Tower, which fell about 1720 and was part of an early castle, now gone.)
